    We're leaving for our first trip to Disney in 5 days. We have an 8:15 appointment at the BBB for DD, age 4. I already have a costume for her but can't seem to find shoes anywhere. Is it possible to purchase shoes there?

    Hi Nina,

    Five days?  Wow!  Your family must be so excited!

    The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Downtown Disney is housed in the biggest Disney Store on the planet.  It is possible you will find shoes, Crocs, flip flops, or other footwear that will complete your daughter's outfit there.  However, may I make a suggestion?  I heartily encourage you to bring comfortable shoes from home that you know will keep her happy.  A princess with blisters on her feet is a cranky princess, indeed!  Most of the princess outfits are pretty long so having coordinating footwear is not a must.  Or perhaps you could bring or buy a simple but elegant pair of shoes (ballerina slippers, perhaps?) for a few pictures and then switch into more comfortable footwear for the rest of the day.  Trust me.  You and your little princess will be glad you opted for comfortable shoes by the end of the day.

    Have fun on your exciting, upcoming trip!
